Viewed from an A ramp elevator lobby.
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
This is an angle I have not used very much, from the top of the Fifth Street ramp. Because the wall is so tall (forget about watching a game from here for free -- OK, maybe with a step stool) I have to hold the camera up over my head and just snap, hoping I get something good. Here I did. This view then looks to the southwest.
Here we are waiting for the first train to arrive at the station (Nov 14).
Somebody asked how long it would be before the tarp had a sponsor. Well, not very long.
The tracks on the right will be moved to the newly-cleared area on the left. The edge of the ballpark will be about where the rocks and dirt meet.
This is the outside portion of the Metropolitan Club.

These outfield stands will likely remain visible to passersby.
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)

I had to hold the camera as far over my head as I could to get this shot, in which the infield is finally visible. It's a spot made for your average Timberwolves player.
...but you can get a feel for what it will be like.
These guys were there, but it wasn't any of you, right?
Wayfinding within the B ramp is still a work in progress.

It's a great view of the action, though standing here is somewhat discouraged.

What has been actually built so far is only a tiny subset of this vision.
Finally, a night game image -- complete with fireworks! (OK, it's either a construction photo which has been Photoshopped, or some lucky photographer spent the Fourth of July in the upper deck watching the fireworks over the river. Cool either way.)
